Comments: Insomnia Coach has a 5-week training plan that helps users change their sleeping habits, to get better quality sleep through managing their sleep environment, behaviour and habits. It is helpful for people without a medical diagnosis (eg, epilepsy, bipolar disorder, sleep apnoea) that are known to affect sleep to change their sleep habits and improve the quality of their sleep. The app is less useful for individuals who are shift workers.
Safety concerns: None – has advice on when to seek medical help.
New Zealand relevance: Yes, relevant to a New Zealand audience.
